    I got some unexpected answers when I googled "illnesses that have been renamed".

    There are claims (from people who are anti-vaccine) that polio has been "redefined" to make vaccination look better : http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/2015/07/polio-wasnt-vanquished-it-was-redefined/

    It has been suggested that a disease called "Reiter's Syndrome" should be renamed to "reactive arthritis" because Reiter was a Nazi sympathiser who participated in human experiments at concentration camps and thus is now an embarrassment to the medical profession : http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S0482-50042012000200014&script=sci_arttext&tlng=en

    Ditto with a doctor named Wegener : https://www.mprnews.org/story/2011/05/18/nazi-named-disorder-name-change

    Leprosy is now called Hansen's Disease : http://www.healthmap.org/site/disea...ight-leprosy-two-thousand-years-solitude-8812

    Edit : I duplicated one of my links. Doh! I've fixed my mistake now.

    Could they be saying that boys of that age are typically more active than girls - play more vigorous sports etc.

    Yes I'm sure it is something to do with that. However I'm trying to work out exactly what. It could be that boys are an average 100cpm more active though I'm not sure how this is used or adjusted for in the paper.

    And yet when it suits doesn't Crawley claim that ME/CFS is different in kids?

    Or am I confused?
